News from the real world seems to have silenced the creationists today. They never criticize or even talk about fanatical terrorists because those people are fellow creationists, so there’s not much for us to write about.
To lighten the mood, we found something rather odd in the delightfully named Maidenhead Advertiser, a weekly newspaper located in Maidenhead, in Berkshire, England. Their headline is Circus skills taught to Burchetts Green students on special treat day.
We know — you’re wondering: How did our news sweep turn up a story like that? Be patient. You’ll soon see. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
On Tuesday pupils at the Burchetts Green Road school in all years took part in various workshops which included learning how to tightrope walk and spin plates on sticks.
Don’t leave us yet, dear reader. Here it comes:
Kevin the Clown entertained pupils throughout the day as well as balloon creationist Mr Dali, who made a balloon animal for each child to take home.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! A balloon creationist!
The two remaining paragraphs are about the school festivities. Delightful, but of no particular interest, so that’s where we’ll leave it.
And now, because there’s no other news, we we hereby declare another — no, we won’t use our customary term today, but you know what it is. We’re open for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, or even astrology, theology, mythology, and sociology — as long as it’s tasteful and interesting. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But avoid flame-wars and beware of the profanity filters.
We now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it.
